First displaced by draft horses, then later by steam donkeys, oxen were still used in Northwest forests in 1910. Slow but strong, ox teams could pull a heavily loaded sled, as long as it traveled a skid road - a path with cross-laid logs reducing the friction. Logging of any kind was plain hard work, as a look at the driver in detail view 1 will reveal.
